  • Step 1

    Remove candle label. Next, with a cotton pad, swipe the exterior of the candle jar with rubbing alcohol. The rubbing alcohol with act as a great adhesive for the chalkboard paint.

    Step 2

    Next, paint the jar with chalkboard paint. Two coats should be sufficient. I did three coats because I wanted to make sure no glass was peeking through the paint. Wait one hour between coats. Wait 24hrs to completely dry.

  • Step 3

    Next, use twine to wrap around the top of the candle. Wrap the twine just below the rim of the candle. It gives the candle a more rustic look plus I felt the pine branches held better when I glue gunned them to the twine.

  • Step 4

    Now comes my favourite part, the decorating! Use the pine branch to decorate the candle.

  • Step 5

    Once you decorated the candle to your liking, you can now write with the chalk. Don’t worry if you make a mistake, you can always erase it and start again.

  • Step 6

    Lastly, to add a wintery effect, I used the Snow-Tex and applied it with my fingers to the rim of the candle. I also used a brush to swipe some Snow-Tex on the pine branches.
